Quito is the only city on earth that lies on the equator. Surprisingly, it is not hot and humid, but rather cold and wet year round like San Francisco.

D....

There is no variation in the weather. The thing that keeps it from an F is the cool year round temperatures.

"Wet all year round in San Francisco"? - nonsense. Less than 600mm of precipitation, and virtually none in July!

Sunshine not flash, but moderate temperatures not entirely unappealing. Need less rainfall though. C-.

Sunshine hours are only around 1800. The temps are quite cool year-round considering the rain and low sunshine.

With 3000+ hrs of sunshine and much less rain it would be an A-, but as it stands I have to give it a C+.

The last time I visited Quito was about 40 years ago. Some things have changed there since then, but not the climate. Actually there is a lot of temperature variation in Quito. I remember the saying that it could be winter at sunrise, spring at mid day and autumn in the afternoon. I never recall it feeling hot, because temps seldom exceed 25C/78F. Because of the high altitude and relatively low humidity, temps would plummet after sunset. Most homes did not have a heating system, so several layers of alpaca wool blankets were needed at night.

C-, perpetual cool-mild days, equivalent to May-June weather year round here.

B-. Very comfortable climate, and it would be an A/A+ if I wasn't a fan of snow.
